Design Wall Monday - January 14, 2019

It's Monday again, and it doesn't feel like I have progressed very far with my cheddar baskets.  I do have all but four of the handles appliqued down.  Some weeks the progress seems slow, and other weeks, I can see progress.  Last week was slow, but I'm looking forward to making completed basket blocks this week.

Here are the handles spread out on the bar top downstairs, with their other basket pieces.  Each little pile has two baskets of the same cheddar fabric.

The bar top is long and narrow, and it took three pics to show all of them, so I guess there has been some progress.  LOL

We went to the cabin this weekend, and here's a picture of Penny, enjoying the fire in the fireplace.  No snow there, but it looks like the rest of the U.S. got lots of snow!

She has been such a good girl lately.  The boot camp training was definitely worth being separated from her for a month.  She loves being at the cabin, as I do.  It is so peaceful there.  We visited my sister in Ludington, and took down her Christmas decorations and packed them away.  

What are you working on?  I see the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilters have shown lots of quilts online after the reveal.  Such variety in colors with the same quilt design is interesting to me.  Where you place a dark vs a light fabric really changes the look of the quilt.  If you made the mystery quilt this year, are you happy with your color choices?  I looked at some that I really liked, and think I may make the quilt using the values/colors that were pleasing to me.  I do like this year's design.

Thanks for participating in Design Wall Mondays.  I really appreciate you!  As usual, please link back to this particular post somewhere within your blog post.

It's hard to see progress when you have a lot of prep work to do. I like my colors for the BH mystery. It was another fun pattern for sure. I'm not sure I'm going to make all the border blocks. We'll see.

Those are pretty little baskets.

I have been going though fabric and folding and putting on shelves reorganizing but I do take time to sew every day - making progress on all

We were unfortunate with a lot of snow being dumped on us. I'm with Penny, enjoying the warm fire on cold days like this. Thank you for the linky party. Those are some tiny basket handles.

I was going to join your linky, but today it doesn't like my email address. :( You may not think it looks like much progress, but that looks like a lot of appliqued handles to me. It will go so much faster now.

I did the mystery, but have stalled with the layout. I changed colors and I am just not liking the finish. So I am planning to add a little to the border to make my color scheme work for me. I hope. LOL!

Lots of progress on your basket handles and what a sweet dog - kind face! One of these days I will get it together to link to your design wall Mondays!
